North Easton Train Station

An elevation study of the old train station in North Easton, Massachusetts. The North Easton Railroad Station, is a historic railroad station designed by noted American architect. H. Richardson. It is a relatively small station, a single story in height with Richardson’s characteristic heavy masonry and outsized roof. Its long axis runs north-south with the tracks, now disused, along its west side. The building is laid out symmetrically within, with a large passenger room at each end (one for women, the other for men). The station’s facade is constructed of rough-faced, random ashlar of gray granite with a brownstone belt course and trim. Two large, semicircular arches punctuate each of the long facades, inset with windows and doorways, and ornamented with carvings of a beast’s snarling head; a further semicircular arch projects to form the east facade’s porte-cochere. Eaves project deeply over all sides, supported by plain wooden brackets. This drawing was done from the warmth of the car during a snow storm. Faber-Castell Pitt pens with Pelikan watercolors and Lukas Gouache.
